Looks like a no-brainer fix to get started on a larger problem. But yeah- just a simple fix, easily implemented.

if you want that then you support a name change back to Society Of Cooks

but as has been mentioned the Society Of Cooks believe they have outgrown that function so don't want that name

It's an easy fix, and a popular change. Nostalgia is a good reason to keep the name only if the name is important to established players. If it's meant to bring players to the site, or better put, to get new players to stay, it's not a great reason.

"Nostalgia" is putting a negative spin on it. How about, "tradition" or "flavour" or "continuity."

I think it's a terrible idea to take a name that is unique and replace it with something bland and generic.

Would you rename Oxford to "College in Big Town in Northeast England" just because there are no longer any oxen fording there?

Perhaps, but really when it comes to attracting new players to the site, or simply getting them to stay, any of those terms are largely irrelevant.

No?

As I believe I have stated before, this is really an Academy decision. I'd advise you to PM their team leader (dhallmayer I believe) and let him know of your suggestion.
